That's not portability in my book, because I have no way of testing
for specific kinds of errors in platform-independent way.

Yes, and that preexists to our discussion (Windows and unix having different constants to 
say "I died from SIGPIPE").

However, giving the ability to distinguish among exit statuses on a given platform, does not hamper the ability to distinguish OK from non-OK portably.
